The government is considering supporting the unemployed and pensioners by giving them an emergency Easter gift.
According to Dnews, the amount is supposedly 250 euros. The announcement will be made by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in a press interview on Monday 23 January.
The beneficiaries of this emergency benefit will be pensioners and the unemployed.with efforts being made to expand aid to include government employees as beneficiaries, given that the public sector Easter gift has been canceled since 2010.
Issuing a double minimum guaranteed income for 270,000 EEE-KEA beneficiaries (an amount similar to that provided at Christmas), remains questionable, however, as is the “bonus” for recipients of child support.
The Easter gift (doro), which Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is likely to announce at an extraordinary press conference, aims to support low-income pensioners and the unemployed, who are “squeezed in the grip of inflation” that has swept the country.
Among other things, as reported, the government’s election plan includes a reduction in insurance premiums, which Kyriakos Mitsotakis may also announce at a press conference. The impact of this measure will be positive for businesses and workers, as it increases the net income of workers and reduces the operating costs of businesses.
